I just recently installed a new hard drive because my old one died on me. I installed windows XP Pro and all of the current drivers I could find. Some of the components are kind of older, like my graphics card, so the manufacturer website did not have the drivers for it any longer and I had to download from a third party website. The problem that I am having is that every time I try to play any game that I install from a CD ROM or DVD ROM, my computer freezes up during the initial loading. It worked before I did this reset. A list of some of the games I have tried that are not working are: Black and White 2, Medieval Total War, Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth, Neverwinter Nights Diamond. These are the only ones I have tried so far, and I know that at least the last 3 worked fine with the old hard drive.
My system specs are as follows:
Processor: AMD Sempron 2500+
Memory: 1024 MB
Graphics: Nvidia GeForce4 TI 4600 128 MB
Sound: Turtle Beach Santa Cruz Sound Card (I don't know the model off hand)
DVD/CD-RW Combo 40X drive.
On board Ethernet Port, connected to DSL at 100 MBs (i think)
Any help that you can give would really be appreciated! If there is any more information that you might need, ask and ye shall receive! :) Thanks!
